Pours clear with minimal tan foam. Retention is lightening quick while lacing is non-existent.
Aroma is light but full of dark fruits: raisins, prunes, and even cherries on top of a nice sweetness from the malt.
Taste brings out a stronger cherry flavor along with those other dark fruits. Toffee sweetness abounds while there is a bit of booze in the finish.
Medium body at least and more like heavy with no carbonation whatsoever. Somewhat viscous.
This beer surprised me a bit with how smooth it went down, even with all the heat, some of it being worn like a badge. This is a definite cold weather that should be sipped but amazingly can go down too easily. Enjoy!
